In this review we are evaluating the Original Purple mattress. Purple has been know for a while now thanks to its success and has released the New Purple Mattress, which is a more refined version of this one, as well as an adjustable bed frame, a pillow and a mattress protector. All called Purple of course!
An attractive and very comfortable mattress that offers consumers a wide range of features and benefits, the Purple is every bit affordable as it is comfortable and its unique structure contributes to a relaxed sleep night after night.
With its innovative, unique firmness and state of the art, hyper-elastic polymer material, this mattress is fast making its way up the charts as a conforming, contouring and comfortable mattress available at a very affordable price.
A Hyper-Elastic Polymer Mattress Material
Its combination of foam and hyper-elastic polymer materials provides a unique feel that has consumers across the globe enjoying a restful and relaxing sleep night after night.
Although it possesses latex type qualities and a similar feel, Purple does, however, present with greater support and a unique feel all its own.
Because of its superior composition, the typical “stuck” feeling affiliated with many foam mattresses is avoided and consumers can enjoy a remarkable top layer response when switching sleeping positions.
Also equipped with air flow channels, consumers are sure to enjoy cooler temperatures while sleeping.
Purple Mattress Thickness
Purple does present with a rather unique firmness and feel which, on a scale of 1-10, falls somewhere in the range of a 6 to 6.5 rating.
With this ideal firmness rating and the innovative design of the Purple, the mattress tends to fit the sleep requirements and needs of most sleepers which definitely contributes to its overall popularity.
Consumers can get the best soft and firm with Purple’s unique Smart Grid design.
Again, whether a back or side sleeper, the Purple’s top layer easily dissipates pressure between the mattress and your body thereby perfectly supporting your spine as you sleep.
The mattress does a good job of supporting the overall body. For light weight sleepers (less than 130 pounds) the feel is that of floating atop the mattress with little body contouring.
For medium weight sleepers (between 130 and 150 pounds) the Purple presents with a bit of a hug feeling since those in this weight class will sink just a bit deeper into the foam and polymer combination.
Finally, for heavier sleepers (those over 150 pounds) the mattress presents with a greater level of sinkage and contour as well as a greater hug feel.
With many attractive features, the unique material composition of the Purple responds and supports body weight effectively.
Keeping in mind that the heavier parts of the body will obviously and naturally sink into the mattress more, they will also be supported naturally by the unique transitional support layer of the Purple.
This affords sleepers pressure relief needed and provides a much appreciated restful and relaxing night’s sleep.
Layers Of A Purple Bed
Quite a conforming mattress, the Purple easily molds and contours to your body. The Purple has a thickness of 9.5 inches and consists of three layers of foam and hyper-elastic polymer materials:
- Its top layer which delivers cooling and comfort is a 2” hyper-elastic polymer material developed with Purple’s unique ‘smart grid’ design that provides the ultimate in comfort and cooling.
- The middle layer delivers transitional support and consists of 3.5 inches of polyurethane foam. This layer in conjunction with the top layer, presents with both transitional and deep compression support, a feature favored highly by heavier weighted sleepers.
- The third and bottom layer consists of 4 inches of a denser polyurethane foam and is designed to act as a solid foundation for the mattress.
Motion Transfer & Sinkage
The Purple, like many foam mattresses, absorbs motion easily, thereby causing little to no disruption from your partners moving.
Talking about disruption, the mattress has also a light powder coating of a non-toxic proprietary powder material that helps to minimize any noises that the polymer may possibly create.
As for sinkage, this mattress will dip a mere 1 to 1.5 inches whether lying on your back or side.
However, when sitting on the edges of the bed, there tends to be greater sinkage between 2.5 and 4 inches.
Since sinkage is completely dependent upon weight, it will obviously vary depending upon the weight of individual sleepers.
The bounce exhibited with the Purple is unique in and of itself. The polymer material affords a bounce much like that of a latex mattress.
The Purple has a wide range of benefits, and certainly one of its most notable features is that of cooling.
The specially designed air pockets created from the unique polymer smart grid keep the sleeping surface noticeably cooler.
This makes the Purple one of the coolest mattresses for sleeping all year round.
Purple Mattress Toxicity & Smell
In addition, the Purple is Green, and CertiPUR-US certified as well.
Our research revealed a mere 10% of consumers reported issues with smell, but overall, the odor is minimal to none and does not last.
Purple offers a platform base that is designed to work perfectly with its state of the art mattress.
However, it is not necessary to purchase the platform base as long as your Purple is set up on a sturdy surface.
A box foundation, an adjustable bed frame, slats that are at least 3 inches apart or even on the floor itself will work.
The Purple comes with a durable cover. Made up of a unique blend of polyester, viscose and polyester-lycra, this cover is highly breathable and is both soft and stretchy.
The cover has an attractive, modern design with a traditional white color scheme.
However, a classy diamond pattern gives the cover a very appealing look.
Though simplistic in design, its overall look is somewhat chic and definitely appealing to the eye.
The cover does zip off, but it is highly recommended that you do not wash your cover in the washing machine unless it is absolutely necessary.
If that is the case, be certain to use only the cold water cycles and lay it flat to dry.
Do not put your cover into a dryer for any reason whatsoever because it will absolutely shrink.
Purple Mattress Warranty & Long-Term Care
The company has no official policy. Rotating your Purple mattress is not required but, rotating it at minimum twice per year, is recommended.
As for flipping, your Purple should not be flipped since the polymer layer must remain on top.
What about Durability?
The Purple is manufactured right here in the USA. Data available to us during our review indicated that the lifespan of the Purple is somewhat better than that of other foam mattresses.
In addition, the unique combination of both foam and hyper-elastic polymer appears to be remarkably durable.
Manufactured with superior products, materials and quality control standards, the Purple has been rated as one of the highest quality products on the market according to our data.
The information available indicates an overall 85% owner satisfaction.
100 Night Risk-Free Sleep Trial and Guarantee
Purple stands firmly behind their product with their 100-day, 100% money back guarantee.
This 100 night risk-free trial affords consumers ample time to try out and experience their new state of the art mattress.
If after sleeping on it for 30 to 100 nights you are still unhappy then contact customer service and they will arrange for pickup of your mattress.
The Purple presents with a 10 year warranty, that, according to our data, is comparable to other modern mattresses within the same price range.

Purple Mattress Complaints & Final Thoughts

Manufactured and developed with its own unique material design, Purple is definitely a vivid, innovative step forward and provides individuals with quality sleep night after night.
With its 6.0-6.5 firmness level, unique airflow channels, state of the art Smart Grid design, easy motion absorption, and its all Green, Eco friendly processes that set it apart from its industry competitors, the Purple is a more than favorable purchase.
